CRS SPECIAL EDITION

We are so thrilled and pleased to be a part of this year’s CRS (Country Radio Seminar) once again. This grand event really signals the start of the music year with not only respect to Country radio but other formats as well. Once again we are most likely holding court in the media room with interviews and getting a chance to meet many artists and bands in person for the first time. It also gives us the chance to get together with artists we have met or worked with in the past and for that, it’s somewhat of a homecoming of sorts. Not only is there a fair representation of recording artists and groups, there are always a good number of radio stations, record labels, music and program directors, not to mention the many industry professionals from publicists to promoters in attendance. Each year we try our best to block off a little time to spend with the many of you, so if you aren’t on our original list please know that we will try to get to all of you very soon. We can remember year’s past meeting a very shy artist just signed to the Warner Brother label that we could hardly understand. His mullet and ten gallon hat only disguised an up and coming artists we now know as superstar Blake Shelton. There were also glimpses into the very early start of a very young Taylor Swift with her glitter guitar in hand. Rascal Flatts gave us some great unplugged performances and that unknown band we now know as Florida Georgia Line also got it all started right here at a CRS event. We’ve captured a good many of these performances with our NMW cameras and they have served as a music history scrapbook that we look to each and every year. Meeting and interviewing artists during CRS also helps to supply us with news and information about recording artists that we use for an entire year. It also provides a special calendar of what the record labels have in store for their up-coming release schedules. Artists and bands that are here in attendance are either being pushed to the forefront by their respective record labels or they have taken their own initiative to represent themselves to the music industry. Either way they all deserve some respect and attention here. For some of you that may be reading New Music Weekly for the very first time, welcome to what we call our New Music Revolution. For a good many years we have been tracking and writing about artists and bands, not only from the major label level but also from the independent arena. Our music charts from Country to Mainstream represent the very best mix no matter how small or large and this gives us the ability to give you a better understanding about how artists are doing according on our panel of radio stations. With regards to our panel of stations, all are treated as equals regardless of market size. We are currently getting ready to announce the winners for our 2015 New Music Awards. As of this writing it looks like those announcements will be made a week after CRS. Our music tracking systems provide the very best in keeping pace with both the majors and independents. With our printed and on-line distribution of the magazine we still provide the very best “tools of the trade” for any label or artist. We are also involved in a number of showcase events and gatherings over the next few days and we hope to meet a good many of you in-person at one or the other happenings. All of us at New Music Weekly understand the importance of CRS and all that it provides artists, bands and record labels. For those of you unable to attend, consider us your eyes and ears for this annual extravaganza. We all look forward to a very successful event here.

Madison Marlow and Taylor Dye met at age 15 through the assistance of a vocal coach who worked with both. The two began working with representatives of Big Machine Records and songwriter Aaron Scherz. They first performed under the name “Sweet Aliana”. After finishing high school, the two moved to Nashville, Tennessee, to begin their musical career. In 2014, Big Machine revived the Republic and Dot name for a new imprint. Maddie & Tae were confirmed as the first signing of the label in June 2014. Their debut single, “Girl in a Country Song” reached number 1 on the Country Airplay chart. The duo never intended to hit a nerve when they sad down on St. Patrick’s Day and wrote the song. The girls were merely their own reaction to the reductive tilt in today’s Bro Country. They wrote the debut single with Scherz, who co-produced it with Dann Huff. The song hit hard at that Bro-Country trend of 2013 and 2014. “Girl in a Country Song” debuted at #58 on the Country Airplay chart dated for the week ending July 19, 2014. After 23 weeks, it reached Number One for the chart dated December 20, 2014. It became the first debut single by a female duo to reach Number One since The Wreckers did it in 2006 with “Leave the Pieces” and only the second in history. Their second single “Fly” was released in January 2015. Maddie & Tae made their television debut when they performed the song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Their debut album is due sometime this year. With any luck we hope to spend some time with them here at CRS but regardless we’re sure to be very busy people during this week long grand event. Here’s hoping all of you have much success during the annual Country Radio Seminar. 3

Ariana Grande is most certainly one of the best female vocalists to dominate Top40 radio in quite some time. Her talents are on display once more as the new “One Last Time” (Motown/UMG) picks up a good number of early believers. Her recent performance at this year’s Grammy Awards also helped to build her fast rising stock. Maroon 5 can’t seem to do anything wrong these days. Just when we thought we’ve heard it all from them, they send out the single “Sugar” (222/Interscope) and again they surprise us with a brilliant offering. One of our new favorite bands in Echosmith is carving out quite the name for themselves. Their latest and greatest in “Bright” (WB/WEA) should serve them well. It’s already getting raves from many of our program directors and that’s a very good sign. The pairing of Rihanna with Kanye West joined by the all-time music legend Paul McCartney has really turned into something special. The new team’s release of “Forty Five Seconds” (DefJam) is the surprise of 2015 so far and radio programmers from coast to coast and multi-formats are all over this one big time. I personally love the song and it will be interesting to see just how high this single travels up the charts. Kelly Clarkson delivers one of her best singles to date. “Heartbeat Song” (RCA/RLG) has all the makings of a solid #1 single and she’s no doubt making her American Idol family very happy. Sam Smith is on a role so don’t even try to stop him. His latest in “Lay Me Down” (Capitol) continues to cement him as an all-time favorite male vocalist. He’s becoming the new Elton John with the looks of Boy George but it all seems to be working. It’s no real surprise that he swept this year’s Grammy Awards and even though he skipped all of the after parties in favor of hamburgers with his pals, he can pretty much call his own shots from now on. Sam’s new best friend in Taylor Swift is also doing quite well for herself. The latest from Taylor is “Style” (Big Machine/Universal) and it pulls her far past the pack of any solo artists on the music planet. Jessie J has to be another find as a strong female vocalist. She shows it off a little bit more in her latest gem “Masterpiece” (Republic). Jessie has all the makings of a long lasting recording artist and so far so very good. It’s great to have Madonna back at the format. Her new “Living For Love” (Interscope) is quite a strong single and it will be interesting to see how radio embraces this one in the coming weeks. She had a huge platform at this year’s Grammy Awards and I’m not sure if it was that impactful but time will tell. Recording artist Brandy Moss Scott is having quite the run with her new single. “Bye Bye Baby” (Heavenly Tunes) is a very strong track and it’s had some rather stellar numbers week after week. Also making some music history of their own is the British band called Tierra Blanca. Their debut single “Always My Woman” (Right) is striking all the right chords at radio and for good reasons – it’s an excellent first single. Bill Curreri is showing them how it’s done. His latest in “Fade Away” (Ind) the follow-up to “Son Of An American Dream” is so strong that you can’t get the chorus out of your head. The band G2P is getting rave reviews from coast to coast. It’s all due to their very strong debut single entitled “Walk Away” (Orion Project). The band is from Tampa Florida but will no doubt be visiting a town nearest you this Summer. Flaunt has teamed up with the multi-talented vocalist Justin Jennings for another masterpiece. “Have I Made My Point” (Anticodon) is super great and our music and program directors are all over this one. Solo artist and songwriter/producer Jim Vierra has a huge hit single on his hands.“Hopeful Eyes” (Fifty Something) is the first one out from this brilliant artist and more good things are set to come his way. Holiboiz featuring wiz-kid genius Yosef has a good thing going. Their new “Take Me To Temple” (Studio) is one of the best out there at radio.

Andy Grammer is back at the AC40 and that’s always a good thing. He’s getting raves from our panel of music and program director’s for the single “Honey, I’m Good” (S Curve/EMI). It’s actually one of his best tracks to date so we’ll see how it all plays out for him in the coming weeks. Echosmith have a very good follow-up to their smash hit “Cool Kids”. This time they take the single “Bright” (WB/WEA) out for a spin and this one could take them out of the “one hit wonder” category. This band of siblings have been all over television as of late promoting the new single and a tour is also set that could pull in some rather impressive numbers for this young and talented outfit. Kid Rock is back at the format and make no mistake about that. He’s rocking strong and powerful with “First Kiss” (WB/ WEA) and radio seems rather pumped up about this one. Taylor Swift is still as hot as any artist on the planet these days and even though she didn’t pull in much Grammy Award wins that hasn’t stopped her new “Style” (Big Machine/Universal) single one bit. Looks like another grand and amazing year for the still young yet powerful Taylor Swift. The pairing of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars has turned into something quite brilliant. Even though Mark had to follow Bruno all over the world to get the record done it appears that their “Uptown Funk” (Columbia) is fast becoming a pop anthem. Ed Sheeran continues his winning ways as “Thinking Out Loud” (Asylum/WB) moves to the top of every programmers playlist. Are you all ready for the Young Rising Sons? They are taking off at radio in a big way as their debut single “High” (Dirty Canvas/Interscope) takes flight. Please remember that you heard about them first right here on the pages of New Music Weekly. The Babys are back and that means more fun at the format. “I See You There” (Ind) is the cut that many of you are loving big time. This time out they may be on a small independent label but that means nothing these days. Speaking of indie labels, newcomer Jim Vierra is making the most of his career as his debut single. “Hopeful Eyes” (Fifty Something) kicked off in a very big way. The single has ranked at the top of the “most added” list for the past few weeks and now it’s making a strong climb up the charts. Tierra Blanca is an independent band that is making a big name for themselves. This British gang is killing it at the format with their debut single “Always My Woman” (Right) and for good reason – it’s a powerhouse smash. Recording artist George Ezra is pulling in some praise at radio. Everybody is raving about his new “Budapest” (Columbia) track. It’s an excellent single and could be well worth your time and attention. Holiboiz featuring the young and talented Yosef is one of the best tracks at radio. “Take Me To Temple” (Studio Records) is a little play off on the Hozier single and this one needs to be on your list. Mirage Box is taking radio by storm. Their debut single “Juarez” (Growlyman Endeavors) is nothing short of brilliant, and our programmers are all over this gem. Rising star D`Shawn Eatmon is one fire with his debut “Forever Loved” (Life Track). Bill Curreri is making magic as his new “Fade Away” (Ind) pulls in bigger numbers. Flaunt featuring Justin Jennings are also getting raves for their “Have I Made My Point” (Anticodon). The band G2P also on the moves as their debut “Walk Away” (Orion Project) moves towards the top. Brandy Moss Scott is taking charge again as her “Bye Bye Baby” (Heavenly Tunes) moves to the top and Matt Backer continues his #1 ways with “Histrionic Narcissist Blues”. Ariana Hodes also deserves kudos for her “You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me” (Ocala/Big Round) single. Meninos Morumbi featuring Julian Lennon is also closing in on the top spot with “Summertime” (Music Is Hope). I’ll have more for you next time right here.

With the multi-platinum success of their band Good Charlotte, it’s easy to forget that its founders, twin brothers Joel and Benji Madden, were once small-town boys from Southern Maryland, who could only dream of hitting the big time in the music industry. “We created the band in our bedroom,” Joel says.

“We were sleeping in the same bed wearing winter coats in a house that didn’t have heat talking about what it was going to be like when our band makes it,” - Benji Of course, they did make it. With their 5 full length albums, Good Charlotte have sold over 10 million copies worldwide, attracted an international fanbase, played headlining shows and festivals around the world, and earned a place in history with their radio-ready pop-punk sound captured on such albums as their 3xplatinum breakthrough The Young and the Hopeless. In the process, Joel and Benji have become international stars. In 2011, Joel was invited to appear as a coach on the highly rated Australian version of The Voice, which has just begun airing its new season. This year, Benji joins Joel as a coach on the upcoming season of The Voice Kids. The brothers also own and operate a fully functional recording studio in Hollywood where they write, record, and produce music for other artists. All the Maddens have ever wanted to do is make meaningful music. “We’ve always had the desire to do something timeless that could outlive us, “Benji says. They have already done that. The Young and the Hopeless was a genre-changing album, and they were only 22 when they made it. Turns out, though, it was only just the beginning. Joel and Benji have started a

new band called The Madden Brothers — a moniker whose simplicity reflects their earnest desire to express who they truly are. “Harvey Leeds, the guy who discovered us, used to say, ‘You’re like The Everly Brothers. Why would you be in a band? You should just be The Brothers,’ Benji recalls. “So the idea was to not hide behind a band name or a genre, write some songs, and find someone to record them and help us deliver the truest picture of who we are musically.” When you strip away the live theatrics and fancy production, Benji and Joel are classic pop songwriters at heart, in possession of a killer knack for melody, harmony, and heartfelt story-telling. They showcase these gifts on The Madden Brothers’ debut album, Greetings From California…, which Capitol Records will release this fall. The album is split into two “sides,” the first filled with upbeat, sunny pop-rock produced by their long-time collaborator Eric Valentine, who also produced Good Charlotte’s The Young and the Hopeless and 2004’s The Chronicles of Life and Death. With a cheery vibe and harmonies reminiscent of The Beach Boys and the Phil Spector sound, Side 1 features several hook-happy stand-outs, including the soulful, ’60s-inspired and lyrically unapologetic “We Are Done,” the unabashedly poppy “Dear Jane,” (with lead vocals by Benji, who sings lead of half of the album’s tracks), and the urgent love song “Out of My Mind.” “We knew we needed to work with Eric,” Joel says. “There’s a magic that happens when the three of us get in a room together. He really knows how to pull the best stuff out of us, not to mention he’s an incredible musician and writer himself.” On Side Two, The Maddens’ radiant sibling harmonies are again front and center on songs like “California Rain” and “Brother,” but the music is more earthy, with a warm blend of folk, Southern rock, and ’70s-era FM pop. To get the sound, the guys turned to Grammy Award-winning producer Joe Chiccarelli, known for his work with The White Stripes, The Strokes, The Shins, Boy and Bear, and many others. “We’ve never had a really organic and natural recording, where it was just us kind of naked and not hiding behind walls of guitars and production,” Benji says. “Joe can capture that unvarnished quality and make it sound great. He’s one of the last great classic record-makers.”

Both sides of Greetings From California… reflect The Madden Brothers’ easygoing, West Coast-influenced creative spirit, hence the title, which was also inspired by what they consider a full-circle journey making the record. It began to take shape during a visit to see their friend Pharrell Williams in Miami in early 2012. They had just come off an 18-month tour supporting Good Charlotte’s 2010 album Cardiology and had been talking about doing an album together, just the two of them.

“We went to see Pharrell because he’s someone we really love and respect,” - Joel “Benji brought an acoustic guitar and it felt like a repeat of us leaving home at 18 for California with just an acoustic guitar. Pharrell recognized that we wanted to make classic, California rock and roll and drew comparisons to the Eagles which inspired us even more. We wrote “California Rain” together that night.” The beginning of Side Two, “California Rain” marked a turning point for Benji and Joel. Lyrically, the song tells the story of the brothers’ East Coast to West Coast journey: “Let me take you back before the lights, before the crowd, before we made a sound / All I wanted was to make my mother proud / She told me ‘Son, we’re from the side of town, no one ever makes it out.’” “It’s about the dream,” Benji says. “It’s about the music industry. California is a magical place, and we liken it to the dream.” “We definitely wanted the song to be epic, because California is epic to us,” Joel says. “The song sums up our experience — past, present, and future. We still believe in the dream. We still believe that some kid somewhere can leave home with an acoustic guitar like we did, a backpack, and 40 bucks, and hitchhike down the road and make it to California.” 15

ALL ROADS

LEAD TO NASHVILLE If you’re a musician, at some point, the city of Nashville will be in your plans. Music City USA has earned its namesake. For decades, aspiring young, and not so young country artists have packed up all of their belongings and moved to the birthplace of country music as we all know it. A few were overnight successes. It took others a while to make a splash. And still others found odd jobs and waited years, and finally got their break. While it’s true not everybody that sets out to become a country superstar makes the grade- in fact, it’s hard to be considered in the Nashville elite as an “A” lister- that doesn’t stop many from finding out what all the fuss is about. Nashville is still country music’s home. But it’s quickly becoming the home for artists of all genres to see, and be seen. There is one particular area that Nashville is successful in keeping traditional, and deems it important enough every year to draw radio station programmers and music directors to the city. Sure, it’s a party to some extent, but the Country Radio Seminar- CRS- is not duplicated anywhere in the country by any other radio format. There’s a lot to be said about your country music superstar. I take notice and pride in the fact that when an artist wins an award, more times than not, they will 16

thank RADIO as part of being their success. Country artists take the time to talk to stations, and in turn their audience base, and make them feel like they’re part of the family. Because, really, the listener is to the true country music artist. And vice versa. That’s why radio stations like the legendary WSM are known worldwide. Country programmers mingle with artists and attend seminars each year that both inform and entertain. Networking is everything. And it is much easier now than ever before to network and never spend a dime on hotels, meals, and functions. But then, you miss out on the true meaning of CRS. Shaking hands. Have a beverage. Share ideas. No matter WHAT you do in life, it’s always better to try and do it in person. CRS has never lost touch with that human element. CRS brings all together once a year to place a face with the name. Many programmers have gone for years. Many go one year, and move on, and never go again. Same with promoters and record label personnel. But truth be told, CRS is really a must-attend function for programmers, and artists, too. Showcases for new artists are months in the planning for a one hour set to grab somebody’s attention. It’s not by fluke that the Grammy awards named a country crossover hit, “Need You Now” by Lady Antebellum, as the song of the year. This multi-format hit had a hook that was unforgettable and all of us could relate to that one person that we really “needed” at some point in our life. Country is real. Country is home. Country is roots. Most, if not all that attend every year, leave with those sentiments. And a sad realization that it will be another year before we all come together again.

Rascal Flatts Tip Hand for Las Vegas Shows The trio will kick off a Las Vegas stint at the Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel on Feb. 25 with nine dates locked in through mid-March.“We hadn’t had a chance to do this before, so we wanted to go test the water and see how we like it and see how they liked it,” said DeMarcus. “And we’re honored to be the first country band that they’ve ever asked to do a residency in there.” As a smaller space than the amphitheater-filling stars usually play in, the venue provides an opportunity to create a more intimate setting, and the guys plan to rise to the challenge, hoping to make their Vegas Riot series one of the best yet. “We’ve never really gotten to do this, and it’s been a long time since we’ve scaled back to where it’s gonna be,” Rooney said. “But it’s also exciting because it’s Vegas, it’s the Joint and we’re the first country artists there … so we’re bringing our A game. We’re gonna do some things different. We’ve got some new band personnel and some special things that Rascal Flatts is gonna do that we haven’t done before, just for Vegas.” Fans that can’t make it to Las Vegas will still have a chance to catch the trio in another brand-new setting sometime next year — an HBO miniseries following soldiers in the Civil War. “We all have roles in the miniseries,” DeMarcus revealed. “It’s been in the works for a long time. It’s taken 15 years to finish this script. “The guy that wrote our CSI episode, Michel Beckner, wrote this miniseries, and it’s kinda the Band of Brothers for the Civil War. It follows the same group of guys from the beginning of the Civil War to the end of it. … Now it’s finally greenlit and they’re gonna start pre-production in the spring, so we’ll be doing our part sometime in the fall.”

Kelly Clarkson’s Nanny Needs

Kelly Clarkson is bored of celebrity mothers pretending they don’t have help with their kids. The American star gave birth to her first child, daughter River Rose, last June. She’s also step-mother to her husband Brandon Blackstock’s two children from a previous relationship. Instead of claiming she singlehandedly looks after her tot, Kelly is refreshingly honest about her home life. “Well I’m not going to lie and be like one of those... I always see famous people being like, ‘No, it’s not hard at all.’ Well that’s because we have nannies people!” Kelly pointed out to the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show. “I’m not going to lie, because I grew up in a family where my mom raised three children by herself. “You know, I’m rocking a very comforted situation. And I’m happy for that because I’m able to do both. Don’t you just hate... I know moms out there just want to like slap celebrities when they’re like, ‘Oh no it’s just so easy, I do everything myself.’ I’m like, ‘No you don’t. Where’s your kid right now? Whos watching them right now?’” Kelly is busy promoting her latest record Piece by Piece, which is released later this month. As the album is yet to drop, Kelly was absent from this year’s Grammy Awards as she felt she had nothing new to show at the lavish awards show. She did tune in though, and kept her Twitter follows amused with her running commentary. The 32-year-old found Kanye West storming the stage when Beck won album of the year particularly funny. “Well I thought he was joking! It came out that he wasn’t joking, again! I think he might be the worst at self-sabotaging himself. [I thought he was joking] that’s why I tweeted it and all of a sudden my assistant sent me this interview he did afterwards, like ‘Just so you know, I don’t think he was kidding,’” she giggled. Kanye thought Beyonce Knowles deserved the accolade, which echoed his past awards rant when Taylor Swift beat the Crazy in Love singer to best NMW - FEBRUARY 20, 2015

female video at the 2009 MTV VMAs. “My stylist said it best... he’s this sheriff of justice for Beyonce. Because I love that Jay Z is probably like, ‘I’ve got this. You don’t have to keep defending her’,” Kelly laughed.

Lady Gaga: I said yes!

Lady Gaga has revealed she ‘said YES!’ to her partner Taylor Kinney’s marriage proposal. The Bad Romance singer began dating the actor after meeting on the set of her 2011 video You and I. And on Monday February 16, Gaga confirmed reports she became engaged to her beau on the most romantic day of the year. ‘He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!’ she wrote in an Instagram caption attached to a photo of her left hand donning a huge heart-shaped diamond ring. The touching black and white image saw Gaga’s hand enclosed with Taylor’s. The news of their engagement was first confirmed to Us Weekly on Monday by Times Herald-Record executive editor Barry Lewis, who added that following the proposal, the couple celebrated at the singer’s family’s restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. ‘I heard the singer say ‘it was time’ as she flashed the ring around,” Barry said, who was eating there at the time. “Gaga and Kinney were accompanied by two massive bodyguards, one located by Gaga, the other near the entrance to the main dining room. Her father Joe Germanotta popped open a bottle of champagne to toast the couple and welcome Kinney into the family.’ Gaga was photographed on Monday with a big smile on her face and concealing her left hand underneath her right while wearing an oversized purple

fur coat. She and Taylor began dating a few months after shooting the music video in Nebraska, in which the singer ironically wore her mother’s wedding dress. They split briefly in May 2012, only to reunite a month later, and Gaga has often spoken of how much she cares for her beau. ‘He is the right guy,” she told Howard Stern recently. “How do we know? It’s this feeling...”

Kix Brooks Reveals Reba, Brooks & Dunn: Together Show Still Unplanned

The upcoming Reba, Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas show is already one of the most anticipated Las Vegas gigs of 2015. But with the June 24 opening night only a few months away, Kix Brooks admits they still don’t know exactly what the evening will include. “We’ve got until June, that’s the way we figure it,” Kix told reporters. “We’re going to keep having dinner, and saying ‘We gotta put a show together.’ That’s about as far as we’ve gotten. But something tells me, especially with the redhead cracking the whip on me and Ronnie, it’ll happen.“ Although the three singers haven’t finalized a set list yet, Kix did reveal a couple songs that they will most likely perform together “I think we’ll probably do ‘My Maria’ and some stuff like that. That’s about as far as we’ve got,” he said. “I think if we’re going to have a little get together, people are going to want to hear some of those songs. There will probably be a ‘Fancy’ thrown in there.“ Not that any of them seem to mind the delay. “We gotta put a show together. It’s gotta happen,” Kix said. “But we’ve been having fun having dinner and going on vacation and talking about ‘We’ve gotta put a show together,’” he says. Reba, Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas has three shows scheduled in June, three in July and six in December. The show will be held at the The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace.

Sam Smith: Drake’s the bomb

Sam Smith is a massive Drake fan. The rapper is currently getting fans excited with his mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. And while their musical styles couldn’t be more different, it seems his latest lyrics have struck a chord with crooner Sam. “Drake is everything (sic),” he simply posted on his Twitter page. In general, the 22-year-old Brit seemed to be taking time out to appreciate his idols. He also gave designer Phillip Lim a shout out on Instagram, posting a snap of himself wearing a striped overcoat by the fashion star. “In love with this @therealphilliplim jacket!! Thank you so much for my flowers as well Phillip xxxx (sic),” he wrote. While Sam can’t keep from gushing about the people who inspire him, it’s likely many fans look up to him too. He bagged four awards at the Grammys earlier this month and had cause for celebration at the weekend when his album In the Lonely Hour returned to the top spot in the British charts. “NUMBER ONE AGAIN IN THE UK!!!! Holy sh*t. Completely speechless. 6th time this album has been #1 !! Thank you all so so much. Insane xxxx (sic),” he posted on Twitter. Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran’s x sits at number two and Sam’s musical favourite Drake holds the third spot. Drake dropped the album last week, completely unannounced. Fans responded well, getting the title trending on Twitter almost immediately.

Ne-Yos London Landmark Ambition

Ne-Yo wants to hire out Big Ben to promote his new record. The 32-year-old singer recently released his sixth album Non-Fiction, which includes his latest hit single Coming With You. He’s jetting around the globe to promote his music and is currently in London, UK, where he’s made an appearance on BBC Radio 1’s Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw. During his chat this 21


While on the West Coast run of his solo tour, rock legend John Oates visited the Los Angeles set of Modern Family to thank the cast and show creators for the recent episode that revolved around Hall & Oates’ #1 hit “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do).” Oates spent the afternoon meeting cast members, including Julie Bowen, Ty Burell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, and Ed O’Neill. Stonestreet continued the musical love with his on-set Instagram rendition of “Maneater.”

morning he got involved with the game Call or Delete, which sees celebrities either remove a contact from their mobile phonebook or prank them. Showing his sense of humour Ne-Yo went for the second option and ended up ringing Darcus Beese, president of Island Records, with an elaborate pretend plan to put his album on the radar. “I’ve been getting the run around from everybody else man, that’s why I’m calling you about this. So, the album is coming out any minute and I’m in a really, really good creative place, like I’m in a really good creative space, it’s the vibe of London... But I feel like I wanna do a show, I wanna do something kind of storytelling, kind of acoustic,” he explained to Darcus. “I’m thinking the O2 [venue, which seats around 20,000 people]. I need this to happen man, I need this to happen. OK if not the O2 maybe we can do it like... no, no [not small], this is big! This is album number six man, we gotta go big with this. Small is small, I’m Ne-Yo, this is album six, we can’t go small with this. It’s not gonna make any sense. His fake plans didn’t stop there, and he told Darcus he had a London landmark firmly in his sights. “Non-Fiction is huge, we’re getting great response in the States, I need it to be the same and bigger here. How about Big Ben, can we hire out Big Ben?” he deadpanned. Ne-Yo is a family man as well as a musician. He has daughter Madilyn and son Mason with former partner Monyetta Shaw and always puts time aside to spend with his little ones. They’re his “biggest fans”, and at the same time his smallest, he notes. They understand he’s a famous singer but don’t think much about it, seeing him as just their dad.

Calvin Harris’ Snapchat Scorn

Four-time GRAMMY® Awards winners The Doobie Brothers have added new dates to their nationwide 2015 tour, including select dates with Don Felder of The Eagles. The Doobie Brothers recently launched their “Takin’ It To the Streets Concert Club”. Members of the new concert club have advance access to ticket pre-sales (including reserved seating options), as well as exclusive merch and meet & greet opportunities. Fans can join the “Takin’ It To the Streets Concert Club”

Calvin Harris likes to ‘have a rant’ on Snapchat. The Blame DJ and producer sent his fans a message on the social networking app over the weekend. And during his tirade, he admitted he found the medium a good way to get things off his chest. ‘I quite like Snapchat for having a rant about something, but to be honest, who cares? Who f**king cares anyway?” he said. Calvin has never been afraid of speaking his mind on websites like Twitter or during interviews. And during his message, the Scottish star seemed to have a go at wannabe musicians. ‘If you write, produce, mix, sing the song yourself ‘ if it’s sh**e, it’s still sh**e. That’s the bottom line,’ he said, before mimicking a hypothetical fan in a funny voice. ‘Aw he’s so sassy today, I didn’t know he was like this. I thought he was like David Guetta, that other fella.’ As well as talking about music, Calvin addressed messages he’s received on Twitter about his recent collaboration with Armani. The music star posed for a series of photographs for the label, which he shared with fans back in December. As part of Armani’s Spring/Summer 15 collection, Calvin can be seen shirtless, with a rippling six pack on show. But it seems he has received some unnecessary comments about how much his appearance differs to when he first started out in the music business - and the 31-year-old doesn’t appreciate it. ‘Comments on my Twitter looking at my Armani picture like, ‘He’s changed now he’s got money, funny what money can do...’ he continued. ‘That wasn’t f**king money, man, that was six days a week in the f**king gym.’

Abba’s Frida Releases First Song in 10 Years

Anni-Frid Lyngstad (aka Frida from Abba) has released ‘1865’, her first new music in a decade. Frida’s previous recording was for the track ‘The Sun Will Shine Again’ for a Jon Lord (Deep Purple) classic project ‘Beyond The Notes’ in 2004. Her last album was the Swedish language recording ‘Djupa andetag’ in 1996

recorded at ABBA’s Polar Music Studio in Stockholm. ABBA’s final album was ‘The Visitors’ in 1981. Frida said she had retired from recording in 2004 but did surface for a performance of ‘Morning Has Broken’ by Cat Stevens for the 2010 album ‘Reconnection’ by Georg Wadenius. The song was a personal favourite of hers and was played at her wedding to Prince Ruzzo in 1992. Prince Ruzzo died of lymphoma in 1999. ‘1865’ reunites Frida with Dan Daniell, who she recorded the song ‘Lieber Gott’ with in 2003. ‘1865’ marks the 150th anniversary of the first ascent of the Matterhorn in the Swiss town of Zermatt. Both Friday and Dan live in Zermatt. The proceeds from the sale of the single will go to the foundation ‘Frida and Dan Daniell for children,’ which Frida set up together with Dan Daniell. The Foundation supports small projects in Switzerland, but also in Europe and around the world.

Taylor Swift is BFF’s Maid of Honour

Taylor Swift is thrilled to be her friend’s maid of honour. The 25-year-old singer posted an adorable flashback snap on Instagram of herself and childhood pal Britany Maack, with both girls wearing cute onesies and cuddling. And it seems congratulations are in order for Taylor’s girlfriend, as she’s tying the knot and has asked the Shake It Off songstress to take on a special duty. ‘Taylor, You are more than a friend, you are more than a best friend. You are my sister. I cannot imagine having any one else by my side on my wedding day. Will you be my maid of honor? (sic)’ Britany asked in a note written on a special piece of paper, complete with the words ‘Ben & Brit’ embossed at the top. The sweet message accompanies the photo of them, kept in a gold pearl frame. Clearly ecstatic at the thought, Taylor responded with: “YEAH I WILL. (sic)” It appeared the blonde beauty had romance on the mind over the weekend, but not in the way many would think. To celebrate Valentine’s Day on Saturday, Taylor decorated a whole bunch of homemade cards to give out to various people who mean a lot to her. One was for her mother Andrea, which had the word ‘MOM’ on the front in green felt tip and was surrounded by colourful flowers, while another was penned out to someone called Hannah in Australia. “I just want to spend my life showing the people I love how much I love them, (sic)” she wrote alongside her arty upload. Fans were overwhelmed by the gesture, with one user called swifttwain gushing: “Why are you so nice?! I love you! Will I hang out with a guy? ?? Again Im in aww of the things you do!!!! (sic)”

Dead Kennedys Announce Headline Tour

Legendary US punk band, Dead Kennedys, have announced a string of UK and EU headline tour dates for June 2015. 2014 saw the group play a handful of UK gigs, including a sold out night in the capital at KOKO, and a couple of festival appearances; now Dead Kennedys return to the UK and Europe in June, culminating with a show at London’s landmark venue, O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Formed in 1978, the Dead Kennedys were a pioneering force in America’s punk movement in the late 70s and early 80s. They were one of the defining hardcore punk bands of the time and have since become one of the most important. Their distinctive sound stood out and the influence of British punk could be heard in their music and their lyrics, which were often rooted in politics. The group’s revolutionary spirit meant they were considered by some to be the most dangerous band in hardcore, even facing trial for explicit artwork in the mid-80s, but the Dead Kennedy’s legacy has become far NMW - FEBRUARY 20, 2015

Turnaround Arts, a President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH) program, is a public-private partnership that uses the arts to help narrow the acheivement gap, increase sutdent engagement and improve the culture and climate in the country’s highest poverty schools. “NAMM members have been engaged in Turnaround Arts schools in New Orleans and Washington D.C., and we have been immediately pulled into the positive energy that the arts have infused into these schools,” said NAMM Foundation Director Mary Luehrsen. “We are honored to be involved in this important effort and are inspired by the progress students are making through the power of music and the arts.“

Like a favorite secret swimming hole nestled in the Smoky Mountains, the outdoor pool at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort is taking shape. Released today, new renderings reveal the resort’s outdoor pool fits right in with its already beautiful natural surroundings. The nearly 4,000 square foot pool meanders through a lushly-landscaped pool deck and provides families with a refreshing retreat. On one end of the resort pool, water cascades from a gentle waterfall just outside the lobby’s three-story windows. On the other end, the zero-entry swimming pool allows families to wade right in as the entry gradually slopes from the deck into the water, just like a natural pond or lake. Meanwhile, a second waterfall featuring a “lazy stream” offers swimmers another alcove to splash and dip. Resort guests can paddle, float or play in depths up to five feet. NMW - FEBRUARY 20, 2015

Lyons has a full year of touring ahead, performing at festivals such as Country Jam in Eau Claire, IA, Country Thunder in Twin Lakes, WI and Country on the River in Prairie Du Chien, WI.

more dangerous. They have influenced countless artists and musicians, even though they were largely ignored by the mainstream media during the height of the band’s career, releasing four studio albums until they disbanded in 1986. Despite the absence of former frontman Jello Biafra, Dead Kennedys have triumphed since reforming in 2001. The line-up for the forthcoming live shows is; East Bay Ray (guitar), Klaus Flouride (bass), DH Peligro (drums) and Ron ‘Skip’ Greer (vocals).

Carrie Underwood & Brad Paisley’s Baby Texts

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley have been friends for years. I remember seeing her open for him at the end of 2006 and thinking, “I bet those two will be friends forever.” So here we are, some eight years later, and so much has changed. Paisley has since become a father to two boys. And now Underwood is on the verge of having her first son. So surely he’s got some advice for her. Or maybe he doesn’t. “I have no clue what to tell her,” Paisley told me during his recent visit to Chicago. “I’ve gotten a few of texts from Carrie … like, ‘Who’s your pediatrician?’ And, ‘How do you do that?’ Or, ‘What’s this?’” Even though Paisley has the fatherhood thing down to a science, he admits it’s very different for a female artist. “My kids get to be home with my wife, their mother,” he noted. “And it’s a much different thing when it’s the mom going on the road. I cannot imagine what it would be like if she’s got a weekend with three shows, and she’d have to just leave breast milk in the fridge. That would be rough.” Paisley’s own sons Huck and Jasper come out on the road now and then, but he told me if it were up to them, they would always be there. “It’s easier for them to be home because they have school and homework. But they do like it out here,” he said of the road. “They are really good kids, and this age is the greatest thing ever.” Even Underwood’s husband Mike Fisher doesn’t quite know what to expect about life with a new baby. “I think that’s important, and obviously kids are going to add a different dynamic that I can’t wait for. I think it’s going to be awesome,” Fisher recently told The Tennessean newspaper in Nashville. “(Having kids) is something that a lot of people say it’s hard to explain until it really happens, and then it’s the greatest thing ever. I’m just kind of thinking about wanting to be the best dad I can be.”

Minaj Tour Manager ‘stabbed to death’

Nicki Minaj is ‘so sad’ after two of her crew members were stabbed during an altercation in Philadelphia on Tuesday. According to TMZ De’Von Pickett, 29, who worked as the rapper’s road and tour manager was killed while another crew member, 27-year-old Eric Parker, was left in a critical condition. And the Super Bass singer seemingly confirmed the reports by posting a photograph of the two men on Instagram on Wednesday morning. ‘These guys flew into Philly for my tour rehearsals 2 days ago and were both stabbed last night. #RIPDAYDAY condolences to your family. Unbelievable,’ she wrote. ‘Eric (on the right) is recovering. Another senseless act of violence that took the life of a great guy. So sad.(sic)’ The 32-year-old shared a photograph of the two men which the rapper Faboluous had previously posted while expressing his sadness for his close friends. The two men were stabbed following a bar fight at Che Bar & Grill in Philadelphia’s West Oak Lane neighbourhood according to NBC 10 Philadelphia. ‘We believe that both of the victims, as well as the perpetrator, were all inside of this bar and that’s when an argument started,’ Chief Inspector Scott Small told the station. A number of witnesses told authorities that the altercation may have had to do with a recently fired employee, but this is yet to be confirmed. Nicki’s friend and fellow rapper Faboluous couldn’t contain his grief earlier on Wednesday. ‘My friend [De’Von Pickett] (left) died & my friend Eric Parker is in critical condition in the hospital fighting for his life,’ the rapper Faboluous wrote alongside the picture of the two victims. ‘I am still in shock & don’t want to believe this.(sic)’

John Mayer ‘ready for family with Katy’

John Mayer is reportedly desperate to have a baby with Katy Perry. The couple first got together in 2012 and had an on/off romance before going their separate ways last year. Although she was later linked to stars including Diplo and Riff Raff, the couple are thought to have reunited following her storming performance at the Super Bowl half-time show. “John adores Katy and has been a mess since their last breakup,” an insider told the American edition of OK! magazine. “He wants to start a family.” Apparently the relationship is very different this time around, as both Katy and John have changed. They now realise what they want out of both life and a romance and believe they can only find that with each other.In fact, things are going so well there are whispers the couple

The list of illustrious panelists included GRAMMY-nominated hip-hop magnate Rick Ross, GRAMMY-nominated scribe Ester Dean, GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter & producer David Hodges, multiplatinum, GRAMMY-nominated producer Mannie Fresh and country music’s number-one-hit wordsmith Natalie Hemby.

There is speculation they might exchange vows in April, with Katy’s hometown of Santa Barbara the frontrunner for a venue. Neither has spoken about their apparently reignited romance at the moment, although John made no secret of his admiration for his ex following her Super Bowl performance. Shortly afterwards he guest hosted a US talk show and jokingly invited the giant toy sharks who danced with her on stage on as his guests. He mock interviewed them and then later spoke of his admiration for Katy to Andy Cohen, another of his guests. “It was unbelievable,” John gushed. “And I think the whole thing about the sharks, everybody wants to talk about the sharks because it’s just something everyone can grab onto because not everyone feels comfortable walking around saying that Katy Perry was amazing. ‘So they use the sharks as kind of, ‘Guys, love the sharks.’ It’s like, you have nothing bad to say about the performance, do you? ‘No, I don’t.’ Because if they did, you’d hear about it. She made the internet a kind, gentle place for a day. It was awesome.”

Rihanna ‘is after Leo’s friend’

Rihanna is reportedly interested in Leonardo DiCaprio’s close friend. The 26-year-old singer and Hollywood star have set the rumour mill turning with their regular outings, most recently being spotted leaving New York’s Up & Down nightclub together in the early hours of Valentine’s Day. However, according to New York Daily News’ Confidenti@l, Rihanna isn’t actually pursuing Leo. According to the publication, it’s club owner and Leo’s close friend Richie Akiva the songstress has her eye on.

They’ve been hanging out together a lot.’ During this getaway the insider revealed Leo spent most of his time at the beach while his two friends stayed in close proximity of each other. And earlier this week Rihanna and Richie apparently hit the businessman’s hot spot Up & Down again, where a regular attendee at the venue insisted it was clear the pair were there together. ‘She’s not showing up with Leo, she’s showing up with Richie,’ they explained before adding that the entrepreneur took to the microphone to give his date a shout-out before the DJ spun one of her tracks. ‘I’ve been at 25 to 30 clubs where Rihanna was hanging out. If anyone else had done that, she would’ve been p**sed.’ When Leo turned up, the onlooker noted Richie was “bouncing between” him and Rihanna, while the Bajan beauty enjoyed her night singing and dancing away.

Adele ‘lined up for Glastonbury’

Adele is apparently considering playing Glastonbury. The 26-year-old singer has taken several years off to concentrate on raising her two-year-old son, Angelo. But with the upcoming release of her third album, which she is currently working on in the studio, Adele is said to be considering a comeback on a large scale. And it doesn’t get much bigger than the world-famous annual music festival in Somerset, England. According to reports, Adele is in talks with Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis and his daughter Emily to headline Saturday night of the festival. ‘Most of the acts have been booked for Glasto but Michael and daughter Emily Eavis are still trying to get Adele for Saturday night,’ a source told British newspaper the Daily Mirror. ‘She has been on their wishlist for a few years now. Negotiations are ongoing but this is the closest they have got to signing her. ‘Several bands that have been booked for Saturday have been told they could be performing before her. It’s created quite a buzz.’ A festival spokesperson declined to comment on the speculation. However, landing Adele would be an incredible feat, as the Someone Like You singer has previously insisted she would never play such an event. ‘The thought of an audience that big frightens the life out of me,’ Adele said previously. ‘I don’t think the music would work, either. It’s all too slow. I’d hate to book a festival and have a f***ing anxiety attack and then not go on stage, do you know what I mean?’

After two years and performing 105 shows for 337,500 guests from all over the world, international superstar Shania Twain took the stage at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace for the last time Saturday evening with her headlining residency show, SHANIA: STILL THE ONE. Ever since she made her historic arrival to the city by shutting down the famed Las Vegas Strip with a stampede of horses, Shania has made an indelible impact on Las Vegas. Since opening SHANIA: STILL THE ONE on Dec. 1, 2012, the show has received accolades from fans and critics alike, including being named “Best Resident Performer” in the Las Vegas Weekly’s annual “Best of Vegas 2014” issue. Further demonstrating her love of the city, in Oct. 2013, Shania opened the first international Shania Kids Can Foundation (SKC) Clubhouse at Tom Williams Elementary School in North Las Vegas. SKC is Shania’s non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk children in communities across the world. The program, founded as a response to the difficulties Shania endured as a youth, is designed to implement simple, yet effective initiatives to increase the potential of students in the program to live successful, fulfilling lives. To commemorate Shania’s dedication to SKC and the city of Las Vegas, during the show Saturday evening, John Meglen, President of Global Touring with AEG Live, and Sean McBurney, General Manager of Caesars Palace, presented the Shania Kids Can Foundation with a check for $5,000.

Marilyn Manson’s Album Is ‘Debt To The Devil’ Marilyn Manson fears he was a “little negligent SPINS CUME WEEKS on his bills” after selling his soul to the devil. The goth rocker has been called many things during his career, including a Satan worshipper, and some even blamed him for the US high school massacre in Columbine in 1999 after the perpetrators were said to be fans of his music. It led to a difficult period for the star, who stopped enjoying his career because he felt “all door were shut” on him. He has released records since then but it’s his latest, The Pale Emperor, which is being touted as his real comeback. “You have to admit that to yourself, and that’s sometimes a hard pill to swallow, but it makes you more of a man, so to speak,” he explained to Kerrang! magazine. “And... if I sold my soul to the devil [then] I did have to pay him back. And I think that I was a little negligent on my bills. I heard someone knocking on my door, and the hellhounds, so to speak, and I think that this record is payment is full, with interest, thank you, you’re welcome, cheque’s in the mail, devil.” The 46year-old star has spent time in rehab and on one occasion some of his friends felt he needed to be committed to a mental health facility. He’s more stable now and believes he’s found a way to stay balanced. “Do drugs and drink when you’re in a good mood, not when you’re in a bad mood, and to do what you do and look good doing it, and be certain about what you’re doing, and don’t let anything stand in your way,” he said. Marilyn has been married in the past, to burlesque star Dita Von Teese. That broke down and he was with Evan Rachel Wood for a time, but is now dating photographer Lindsay Usich. He has written tracks about his past romances but fears love doesn’t do much for his craft. “Romance tends to be the most devastating thing if you make art, and people don’t think I have that spectrum of emotions. I couldn’t be so angry or passionate about things if I didn’t have real feelings, and sometimes people think I’m something they see on a piece of paper or the internet and not a real human being,” he said. “But if you let the barometer in your life tilt towards the direction of other people that you’re with, in any situation, and mostly in romance, you stop being yourself, and then you’re not the person that the other person wants, so it’s never good to do that. It really makes everything fall apart.”

Warner Music Nashville and friends celebrated a classic evening with Brett Eldredge, who performed classic Sinatra songs along with his powerful ballad “One Mississippi.” Before heading on stage, Eldredge posed with WMN execs and management for an authentic “mafia” style family photo.

Carrie Underwood is back with another Country hit. “Little Toy Guns” (19 Recordings Limited/Arista Nashville) is the one she’s taking out for a spin and we can bet that the powers that be over at American Idol are hoping for great things just as their new season is getting started. Kip Moore has a new single on his hands that is getting raves from our panel of music and program directors. “I’m To Blame” (MCA Nashville) is the track that is keeping Kip at the top of his game. We’ll see how this play out for him in the coming weeks but if I’m a betting man the odds are in his favor big time. Brad Paisley keeps the Country hits rolling and moving strong. His new single “Crushin’ It” (Arista Nashville) is pulling in the calls and emails and there’s a big buzz on social media for this one. Kenny Chesney is back at the top of his game and make no mistake about that. His new “Wild Child” (Blue Chair/Columbia Nashville) is pulling in powerful numbers from coast to coast. Tim McGraw has teamed up with Catherine Dunn for a winning combination. “Diamond Rings And Barstools” (Big Machine/Universal) is the one to watch for. Better yet just put this in a very high rotation out of the box. Easton Corbin has one great record out at the format. “Baby Be My love Song” (Mercury Nashville) is such a strong song and radio should pick up the pace on this one before it disappears. Keith Urban has teamed up with Eric Church and what a pairing this is. Together they are bringing “Raise ‘Em Up” (Capitol Nashville) to radio and our programmers are all over this gem. Recording artist Steve Garris is getting some well-deserved action on our country charts. “A Taste Of The Wind” (Rose Feather) is the one that is opening doors for this promising artist. Mickey Guyton seems to have the right stuff for Country radio. So much so that the single entitled “Better Than You Left Me” (Capitol Nashville) continues to build spins and adds in leaps and bounds. We’ll see how it all plays out in the coming weeks but so far it’s not too shabby. Matt Farris has been making quite the name for himself. I have to admit that I’ve loved most of what I’ve heard from him so far. Now he’s taking the track “She’s Done” (Skytone) out for a spin and it seems to be working for him. Frankie Ballard has become a solid name to reckon with. His new “Young & Crazy” (WB/WEA) is keeping pace with the best of him and we have to give him a big pat on the hat for what he’s already accomplished so far, A Thousand Horses are on fire and make no mistake about that my friends. “Smoke” (Republic Nashville) is their latest and greatest and this one is moving to the top of many playlists here and around the USA. Rascal Flatts are keeping the fires going strong. “Riot” (Big Machine/Universal) is just another step for this multi-talented outfit and it’s all moving in the right direction. Cole Swindell is on the march and that is a very good thing. “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey” (WB/WEA) got a bit of a slow start but seems to be finding its footing at Country radio. I’m not sure why that happens from time to time but if he stays on course (and his label too) it should all work out just fine in the long run. Sam Austin is fast becoming the new darling of the format. “It Looks Like Rain” (Plateau) is all that was needed to build a fast moving story. Miranda Lambert is red hot and make no mistake about that. She really rocks it strong with “Little Red Wagon” (RCA Nashville) and from the sound of this record she might just become a heavy rocker crossover babe. As you know we still have nomination’s out there. Strong votes are coming in for Andrew Heller, Hicks and many powerhouse independent and major label artists. Winners will be announced right after we come back from CRS so keep the votes going strong.

C arrie Underwood is no stranger to the word “reality.” After all, as the winner of the 2005 season of “American Idol,” she won the hearts of millions of viewers across the world. Now, the singer has entered into a promotion that is sure to please her fan following. S ony Music Nashville and Aurasma, the world’s leading augmented reality platform, have partnered to launch an augmented reality promotional campaign for Underwood’s No. 1 album, “Blown Away,” which was released in May. U sing the free Aurasma Lite app for iPhones, iPads and Android devices available from the iTunes App Store and Google Play, fans can launch exclusive video of Underwood that is triggered by aiming the device at the cover image of Blown Away. The video leaps from the Blown Away image on the mobile device or tablet and provides a click-through gateway to the album at the iTunes store. The promotion was launched in Nashville recently at the CMA Music Festival.

“ Carrie Underwood is always looking for ways to connect with her fans,” said Gary Overton, Sony Music Nashville chairman and chief executive officer. “We are excited to embrace a cutting-edge technology like augmented reality to help give fans something special and provide a cool, unique connection between the artist and audience. Sony Music Nashville is excited to watch this fun idea unfold and is eager to partner with Aurasma on other future campaigns.” U pon its release on May 1, “Blown Away” made history by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country albums sales chart making Underwood only the second country artist in the 47 year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart making Underwood only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” became country’s best-selling digital album debut since 2010. “ Carrie Underwood is a proven superstar. We are thrilled to partner with Sony Music Nashville to help increase the momentum of her smash album Blown Away,” said Jennifer Rapp, general manager of Aurasma. “By leveraging augmented reality to bridge the physical and virtual worlds, Sony gives the fans something exclusive and special, helping to keep fans connected and Carrie in the spotlight.” T he free Aurasma app runs on iPhone 3GS (and above), iPad2 (and above), and high-powered Android devices. Y esterday, Underwood performed the first of four concerts on the Australian leg of her tour to promote “Blown Away.” She kicked things off in Melbourne, and will perform in Tamworth and Brisbane on Friday and Saturday, before finishing things in Sydney on Sunday. Also, Underwood has just released the title cut as the second single -- to follow up the chart-topping success of “Good Girl,” which became her fifteenth number one record.

Country Date To Remember: February 11, 1962 Somewhere, around Fenton, Mo, there are some students who can say that they had one of music’s sexiest performers as a teacher. Sheryl Crow - long before she hit it big in 1993 with “All I Wanna Do,” was actually a music teacher at Kellison Elementary School. Though her teaching days in school are long over, Crow - who turns an amazing 50 years old today has educated many of her fans about some of Country Music’s greatest performers, such as Loretta, Hank, and Johnny Cash. Happy Birthday to one of Rock’s top women! NMW - FEBRUARY 20, 2015

This is our Best Of 2013…so far issue. Throughout this musical visit you will see many Indie artists rising to the top of our charts and a lot of the music perfect for your Summer playlist. You may want to consider being on our Future Hits volume #43. This compilation will get your song to “all of radio” and all tracks will be also serviced digitally through Airplay Access. Contact us this week and make yourself a part of music history. Are you up on These Hearts? Ryan Saunders, vocals, Kyle Colby, guitar/vocals Isaiah Folk, drums, Daryl Van Beek, guitar and Tyler Rice, bass make up this super red hot band. The recent release of the lyric video for “Miserable” has ignited their fans anticipation for their forthcoming sophomore album “Yours To Take” available this month. The new album can be heard live on the band’s headlining album release tour beginning in Joliet, IL. The band’s sound is a combination of honest, refreshing, spirited pitch-perfect harmonies with dynamic and emotive breakdowns. Carrying the torch lit by iconic Victory bands A Day To Remember and Taking Back Sunday, These Hearts has arrived and you read and hear about them first right here at New Music Weekly. The New York based indie rock band Born Cages is set to release their Sidelines EP via Razor & Tie. The band will hit the road this summer as well. Born Cages new EP was produced by Jon Kaplan (Walk The Moon, Augustana) and Oliver Straus (Arctic Monkeys, Matt & Kim) at Mission Sound in Brooklyn, NY. The band is finishing up their debut full length album to be released later this year. The New York City based Born Cages formed in 2011. Within one year the young band had already released an EP, opened two sold-out shows for Guns N’ Roses and shared stages with such bands as Gold Fields, Mother Mother, and Ludo. The band has had music played on Q104.3 in New York and recently recorded a session at the Gibson NYC showroom that premiered on Purevolume. They were also featured on a large billboard in Times Square as part of a Toshiba promotion. Born Cages is Vlad Holiday (lead vocals/ lead guitar), Amanda Carl (keyboards/backing vocals), Steve Kellner (bass guitar/backing vocals) and Dave Tantao (drums). John Tejada has a new exclusive mix for Halocyan Records entitled “Somewhere” via Pitchfork. Have you been following Halocyan Records? This is a global dance brand and record label launched by Dimitri Fergadis, an acclaimed musician and founder of the LA-based experimental electronica label Phthalo Records. Halocyan is dedicated to representing not just the present and future of electronic music, but also its rich history. Halocyan believes that a strong sense of historical roots is an essential launching pad for bold voyages into the unknown. New York City-based retro songstress Joanne Weaver sets out to the Dominican Republic this month to shoot her new music video for “Nature Boy”, the latest single off her debut album Interstellar Songbook which she released in June of last year. The concept album is a collection of Joanne’s unique, psychedelic renditions of eight classic standards from the 40s, 50s and early 60s and is available on iTunes and CD Baby.
